At Maxi-Cosi we design and bring to market the most trusted, intuitive and safe baby capsules in the world. To date, we have carried over 50 million babies home from the hospital in our car seats.

A baby safety capsule is an infant restraint consisting of a convenient stay-in-car base, plus a removable capsule. Suitable from newborn to approx. 6 months of age. Our baby capsules are to be used in rearward-facing position until your infant's shoulder meets the height marker. 

Our Maxi-Cosi baby capsules offer parents peace of mind that their baby is safe and secure, while they can continue to live the life they want. Featuring superior safety features, such as Air Protect, our baby capsules are safe, practical, and easy to remove from the car whilst your baby remains harnessed (and hopefully asleep). Our Mico® Plus Baby Capsule is Australia’s #1 baby capsule in the market and can also be rented through our infant carrier capsule hire service.

Our Maxi-Cosi baby capsules are compatible with Australia's most popular pram brands such as Maxi-Cosi, Bugaboo, UPPABaby, iCandy, Silver Cross, Joolz and Redsbaby. Our newborn capsules can turn into a travel system pram, which is a safe and trusted method of transport for your newborn. Our baby capsule range will help you carry your precious bundle in total safety and comfort in a pram capsule car seat combo.

Why you need a portable car capsule in your life, in 4 quick points

Baby Capsules

A comprehensive list of 4 reasons why you should invest in a removable baby capsule with benefits for both you and your baby.

1. Click in/Click out
It’s as simple as it sounds - our portable baby car seats make it easy to click in and click out of the car or pram. You can get them prepped in the house and all buckled in, carry them to the car have them secure in a simple click, to then arrive at your destination and click straight onto your pram! Even without the pram, you still have the option to carry them around freely in the infant carrier capsule.

2. No sleepy no happy.
Nobody is happy without sleep. The first six months are hard as you’ll be establishing a solid routine, and sometimes you just can’t work around nap times. With our removable baby capsules, your baby doesn’t have to leave the comfort of the seat, you can keep them sleeping as you run about town.

3. Comfortability for you
Need a quick stop at the supermarket or post office? Just want to duck in to grab a few things at the butcher? Having to un click your baby from a rear facing car seat and then carry them in your arms, or set up the entire pram system with seat can just be too painful sometimes. The removable newborn capsule is a quick solution by allowing you to tote your baby around - but also safely pop them down when you need to.

4. Reuse for other babies
Whilst some may baulk at the extra cost of a capsule when the time frame it can be used for is minimal compared to the other travel options like pram and car seats, you can reuse capsules for your second child and so on. Each capsule is designed to be used for up to 10 years, with each child averaging 6 months in it, and if you’re baby doesn’t reach the height markers you can keep going until 8 months. If a second baby comes along and you have more life commitments, like birthday parties and playgroups to attend with your first child, you'll be thanking your past self for the baby safety capsule investment.




Are car capsules safe?

Yes! If you purchase your infant carrier capsule from Maxi-Cosi you will be guaranteed that it has been rigorously tested before it made it to market. To comply with Australian safety regulations, there are a lot of boxes that need to be ticked. All of our car seats, pram capsule car seat combos and baby safety capsules are very safe and come highly recommended by our loyal customers.

How long can you leave a baby in a capsule?

With a newborn you will need to be strategic about how long you’re in the car, between feeds, etc. It’s important to know that both infant carrier capsules and car seats aren’t supposed to be used for long periods of time or for babies to sleep in overnight. Due to the curved position that the baby’s body rests in, it can reduce the oxygen flow that they would have if they were lying flat to sleep.

What is the best baby capsule?

A rear facing baby capsule is the one you will hear the most about as it is the safest option on the market today. These types of baby capsules insulate the infant from impact in the most effective way possible and allow you to move your baby from the car while they are still strapped in the seat.

Should I buy a capsule or car seat?

That is entirely up to you as the costs incurred can become a little difficult to manage pretty quickly. If your plan is to have more than one child, then a portable baby capsule can be a fantastic investment as some of them grow with your infant and can be used within a ten-year span after purchase. At Maxi-Cosi we have plenty of options like different baby capsules for different ages and even an infant safety capsule hire service.

Can you hire baby capsules?

Yes, our hire service is a fantastic option if you need a baby car seat for 3 or 6 months. As babies grow so quickly and car capsules are expensive, this can be a solution to your financing issues and you’ll be able to have the time to find the perfect seat for them down the track.
